There is more to health than what you can see…
The snow is passing and Spring is coming. This means, as much as we have enjoyed being inside since September, it is time to get back out and get active. Not just for our physical well being, but for our mental health to.
The 2017 State of the UK Fitness Industry Report suggested that 14.9% of people in the UK have a gym membership. That may not sound a lot in percentage form, but that equates to roughly around 9780360 people. These gym goers, perhaps you are one of them, are trying to live an active lifestyle and be physically fit. But the brain is the biggest, most used, muscle in the body and just like the rest of our muscles, benefits from nutrients and vitamins.
The wellbeing of your mind must come first. Without your brain functioning at optimum capacity, the rest of your body will not reach it’s full potential. Our diets can play a massive role in this, but at times, it isn’t always convenient or cost-effective to buy fresh healthy produce, so therefore many people turn to over the counter vitamins. So, to help you with that, here are our 3 suggested supplements that are going to increase your brain strength, your mental health and result in a fitter and happier life.
Omega-3 (AKA Fish Oil)
Omega-3 is seen in nearly every health store across the UK, and for good reason to! The benefits behind the oil are long and vast, some of these include decreasing your risk of heart disease and strokes. It has additionally been proven to reduce many negative mental health symptoms such as depression, hypertension, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). As well as helping many other physical ailments like joint pain and arthritis. This, in our opinion, is one of the strongest, most natural supplements on the market and should be the first on your shopping list!

Aloe Vera is renowned for being rich in antioxidants and vitamins that are massively effective on your skin health. A single leaf of an Aloe Vera plant is filled with over 75 nutrients, 20 minerals and 18 amino acids, and 200 active enzymes!
